The N-TRON® 306FX2 is an unmanaged six port Industrial Ethernet Switch. It is housed in a ruggedized DIN-RAIL enclosure and is designed for use in industrial data acquisition, control and Ethernet I/O applications. The 306FX2 industrial network switch is designed to meet and exceed the most demanding industrial communication requirements while providing high throughput and minimum downtime. The 306FX2 provides four RJ-45 auto sensing 10/100BaseTX ports, plus two fiber-based Fast Ethernet uplink ports. All TX ports utilize state-of-the-art Ethernet switching technology and are full/half duplex capable. The 306FX2 auto-negotiates the speed and flow control capabilities of the four TX port connections and configures itself automatically. The two fiber optic ports utilize industry standard ST or SC duplex connectors and are configured for full duplex operation. Both multimode and singlemode fiber models are available. The TX ports of the 306FX2 are auto sensing, so there will be no need to make extensive wiring changes due to future upgrades of host computers, plant systems or Ethernet I/O modules. The switching fabric simply scales up or down automatically to match network environments.
